Read full description of the books On Strike Against God:
I am so frustrated by not taking note of, or action on, this at the time, but I read something the other day that referenced something being "catty," in a "second wave feminist" way. What the fuck. How can I not remember where I read something so appalling? This book is Joanna Russ's only non-sci fi novel. It's subtitled, in some places, "A Lesbian Love Story," which it both is and isn't. It is a lesbian love story, a coming out story, and a look inside the mind of a brilliant second wave feminist who is really fucking angry and funny. And it is so relatable to me in so many parts, just trying to be out socially and going fucking nuts inside your head about every single sickening dynamic and then having the choose whether or not to "ruin" everyone's "good time" by talking about those dynamics. And all that kind of bullshit. And she's funny funny funny. And I read a bit of criticism about how this book works as an alternative to the 2 stories that are always told about women, we either Find Love or Go Mad. And both are themes referenced throughout, played with, and then a third way is found. Loved it. I've loved 2 of her SF novels that Tish loaned me, loved this, and will be reading all her stuff. How the fuck is this out of print? And how the fuck has second wave feminism gotten such a bad name, beyond legit criticism to referencing it as a TYPE OF "CATTINESS?" This book was so relatable and made me think how much we need to keep reading this stuff, and what a crime it is to have this propaganda infiltrate the popular imagination, propaganda that serves to separates us from our very recent history and make us think it's boring or yucky to read 1970s/80s feminist stuff. YAY JOANNA RUSS.
